The B List: Stage Setlist Porn, Pt. 5

3. The Black Keys 9/11/10 Paris, France

Apparently Black Keys’ guitarist Dan Auerbach can’t remember that he needs to tune his axe every so often, so the group’s stage setlists often include notes reminding him to do so.

4. Mike Gordon Band 11/16/2010 Minneapolis, MN

Mike Gordon’s solo band is currently tearing it up on a cross-country tour. At this past Tuesday’s show in Minneapolis, the MGB diverted from the original plan for the jammed out second set as you can see by comparing the stage setlist above to the actual setlist.

5. Gorillaz 7/26/10 Benicàssim, Spain

With plenty of guests on tour with Gorillaz, the stage setlist helps the band and crew keep things straight in terms of who is coming out at what time.

6. Buffalo Springfield 10/23/10 Mountain View, CA

Buffalo Springfield reunited last month after 42 years apart at the Bridge School Benefit hosted by band member Neil Young. The stage setlist above is marked (v.3) making us wonder what the initial two versions of the setlist looked like.

7. Pavement 9/16/10 Columbus, OH

Speaking of reunions, Pavement did a decent job of changing up their setlists from night to night, especially during the Central Park Summerstage run back in September. The stage setlist above comes from a gig in Columbus from just before the Summerstage run and features the scribbled signature of Stephen Malkmus.

8. Furthur 11/17/10 Baltimore, MD

Our most recent stage setlist comes from last night’s Furthur show in Baltimore, MD. The group’s twitter feed has been setting a fine example for how a band’s twitter feed should be run. Stage setlist lovers like us particularly appreciate the “official setlist” tweets at the end of each show.

9. LCD Soundsystem 9/29/10 New York, NY

[via mediaeater]

LCD Soundsystem apparently shies away from capital letters as you can see from the stage setlist above for a private show at the Angel Orensanz Foundation in NYC. There’s something painful about seeing “ny i love you” crossed off on a setlist for a New York show.

10. Phoenix 9/22/10 Las Vegas, NV

[via starbright31]

Alt-pop band Phoenix goes the other way and utilizes capital letters exclusively on their stage setlists. We especially love the use of the Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix logo at the top.

    Great B List. I’m partial to handwritten setlists cause you know they were drawn up minutes before the set. I saw Dawes last week, the guys played a looongggg set and didn’t even use a setlist. I guess they’re all gifted with telepathy.
